I think it's fine to change the ruby/spec to adapt for this.
The test just intends to verify that argument checking is performed,
but of course a compatible evolution of the API like this seems fine.

Feature #12357: Random#initialize with a String

Currently `Random#initialize` only accepts an `Integer`.
It would be useful to accept a `String` to feed the seed from external sources, I think.
